Students' Extracurricular Research

Students' extracurricular research, or "TDK" has a long and glorious past at the IEAS of the University of Debrecen. This is the highest level of undergraduate and graduate scholarship. Both the student and his/her supervisor work in their free time to help the student write a research paper well above the standards of ordinary seminar essays. These papers compete at the biannual national conference (OTDK). The best writings are awarded and are also often published in academic journals. Participation at the OTDK is a major advantage at PhD entrance examinations.

Organised in every second year, recently in 16 sections of the National Conference of Scientific Students’ Associations (OTDK) – with the support of the Ministry of Education and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, as well as the moral and financial assistance of other relevant ministries and national bodies, is a scientific gathering during which the most outstanding scientific papers of the best university and college students are evaluated by boards of renowned Hungarian scientists and professors.
